Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Nepal: Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Nepal on the occasion of Buddha Purnima has proved a new dimension in the relations between the two countries. Prime Minister Modi’s visit was a definite initiative to strengthen bilateral ties amid growing tensions with China over China’s growing influence and border disputes. Let me tell you that this was the first long visit of an Indian Prime Minister. However, within a month and a half, the two prime ministers met for the second time, working to build an atmosphere of mutual trust and cooperation. After the visit, Prime Minister Modi said that India-Nepal relations have been discussed in detail. In less than six hours of Prime Minister Modi’s visit, more than half a dozen agreements have been signed between the two countries.

In many cases cooperation agreements

Prime Minister of Nepal Sher Bahadur Deuba and his wife Areju Deuba and seven cabinet ministers were present to receive Modi on Monday morning. While Prime Minister Modi was visiting the Maya Devi Temple in Lambini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha, he laid the foundation stone of a Buddhist cultural and resource center built by India. It will be built in Nepal with the help of the International Buddhist Confederation in India. The center will have world class facilities like prayer hall, library etc.

The issue of energy was one of the most important issues in the discussions between the Prime Ministers of India and Nepal. Nepal has invited India to develop the Western City project which was incomplete for many years. The Government of Nepal has decided to hand over the development work of the fourth phase of the hydropower project on the Arun River to India. A memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a 490 MW project was signed between India’s public sector company SJVN and the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) on Monday. Sutlej Jal Bikash Nigam Limited (SJVN) is constructing more than 2000 MW power project in Nepal. However, India has also placed a small condition on electricity trade with Nepal. The condition is that India will not buy electricity for hydropower projects built with Chinese money and with the help of Chinese companies.

This Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed.
